I am so sorry Linda and Michael. I always enjoyed my conversations with Roger whether we were on the same side of the topic or not. He also seemed to set the example on how to enjoy retirement. He will be missed.

Mr. Hennessey was one of my favorite teachers. He had a great sense of humor. I remember when he would always call me Icky, instead of Vicki...
Great guy!! Deepest Sympathy to the family.

My heart was so heavy when I heard about Mr. Hennessey passing. He was my math teacher at Washington Jr High in the early 80's and I also did school service for him. He made Algebra fun to learn and was just so darn cool. I will always remember him telling me about his trips, the last one about Jamaica. He said it was so beautiful that I should go there at least once in my life. RIP my favorite teacher EVER. God bless his wife, son and other family n friends.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Roger was my math teacher at Central High for a couple years and I was one of the wrestling cheerleaders. He was always a joy to be around. My prayers are with you!

So sad to learn of Mr. Hennessey's passing. He was my favorite Math teacher at Central High School. Mr. Hennessey was one of the few math/science teachers during that time period who really understood the importance of providing a STEM curriculum to students of all races, genders and social economic status. More importantly, he made Algebra/Trig and Advanced Algebra FUN and accessible. Always looked forward to attending his classes.

I also appreciated how Mr. Hennessey encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and explore the "mysterious world" of math, science and engineering. While I ultimately did not become one of those pioneering women engineers of the early 80s, that solid base in Algebra/Trig is what helped me survive, thrive and ultimately graduate from Marquette University.

Extending my sincerest condolences to his wife, children, family and friends for his loss. Thanks Mr. Hennessey--R.I.P.

Linda and Michael,
We are so sorry to hear about Roger. He brought so much energy to the neighborhood . Getting pick up games going in the court, taking the kids out on the boat. I can't think of a time he didn't have a snile on his face and a clap
You are in our thoughts and prayers. .
Blessings, Ron and Dar

Roger will be greatly missed and we are very saddened that he was taken from us at such a young age. Biking and skiing will never be the same without Roger and Ron.
